Shadowhunters Saved But Its Ending Spoiled?
Through the #SaveShadowhunters Campaign -- after Freeform canceled the series after three seasons back in June 2018 -- the show was renewed for the second half of the third season, which is set to air in early 2019.
However, things keep getting worse for the impatient fans. Not only are they waiting for the upcoming second half of the series’ third and last season, but items in an online prop auction may have spoiled the whole series ending for several fans.
The spoiling took place in September 2018 when the Shadowhunters fandom browsed the internet to an auction hosted by 403 Auction; trying to snag props from the set of the drama.
Unfortunately for some fans, among those props revealed massive twists and plot unveiling the storyline from the last half of the third season.
According to TV Line, one of the ‘spoiler’ objects was "an extremely detailed letter from Clary (played by Katherine) to Jace(played by Dominic Sherwood)."
